    Very interesting story about Ray's Juan Sandoval being blind in 1 eye

    Very cool story about the Ray's Juan Sandoval form yahoo.com.Here's a paragraph and a link to read the rest:

     http://sports.yahoo.com/news/blind-in-one-eye--right-hander-juan-sandoval-still-sees-bright-future-with-rays-070949850.html

    PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. – Only a few of Juan Sandoval's teammates know what happened. Everybody who meets him in the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse notices his right eye, of course. It's impossible to avoid. The lid droops. The cornea puffs out and is slightly discolored. A red ring encircles it. And a glaze sheathes it, like there's a permanent tear ready to escape, only it never does, never can.

    They don't know because they don't ask, and they don't ask because they don't want to stir any bad memories. And even if they were to, they probably wouldn't believe Sandoval. Because the idea of a blind baseball player really is that difficult to fathom.

    Never will he forget the day: Feb. 4, 2006. And the scene: At a restaurant where a drunken man, angry with the bouncer who booted him, returned with the shotgun. And the noise: A blast, loud and furious. And the feeling: Panic and fear and chaos as three buckshot pellets lodged in his eye. And the sight.

    "Black," he said. "Nothing but black."

    Sorry, Mojo.  Couldn't access the link.  Maybe that's why there's little traffic so far on this thread.  Either that, or we've turned a blind ...

    I think the story is horrifying. I'm so sorry for Sandoval. I don't know how he's going to be a pitcher, but if it works out for him, than that would be amazing. Since this happened in 2006, I'm even more confused. Why didn't this story come out sooner?

    what a bummer man. I wish him all the luck in the world. I hope he can succeed.

    not that it matters, but remember when we had okie dokie? I still to this day have no idea how he was able to throw strikes when his face was turned and looking down when he delivered the ball.
